Editor's note: The Gilt Taste-Serious Eats Holiday Gift Shop features all sorts of products that the Serious Eats editors love, brought to you by Gilt Taste. Every day we'll be featuring a different item from the gift shop.
There are some curd nerds who know exactly what kind of cheeses they like and what they don't. But there are others who just appreciate the wide world of cheese and want a little introduction. For those just leaning what they like, we recommend the Newbie Package from New York dairy authority Murray's Cheese:
The Vermont chevre is lemony and mild; the Gorgonzola cremificato has nothing in common with the dull dolce so often found in America; the French double-creme Brie is unctuously creamy; and the charming, nutty Gruyere is bound to win over even the most rabid cheese-skeptic. Spanish fig jam and crunchy olive-oil crackers will help seal the deal.
